“I love the work that Steve Miller is doing on The Implicit Career Search. His model moves us away from career exploration and job search as a ‘sales’ campaign and focuses more on the search for patterns and essences using an heroic career journey metaphor.” Norm Amundsen Ph. D University of BC.
The Implicit Career Search is an integral, purposeful approach to career exploration and planning that is currently being utilized by career and life coaches, employment facilitators and management-trainers across Europe and North America. Based on a Hero’s Journey motif, ICS differentiates itself from other career approaches by providing a proven process to help participants clearly define the purpose of their work. The outer journey, via the Career Development Spectrum®, develops this purpose into a lifelong career plan.
The underlying assumption throughout ICS is that not only do we each have a unique contribution to deliver during our lives, we also implicitly and deeply desire to make this contribution.Independent studies of the ICS approach have shown it to be from two to three times as effective as traditional career development programs in helping individuals attain and retain work while considerably increasing self-efficacy, personal accountability and self-esteem.
This course is a must for anyone in the career and personal development field. It does what no other approach manages to do and that is tap directly into a person’s core motivation for work, finding personal meaning and sense of purpose.
